What is Schedule Pressure?


 Schedule Pressure refers to the shortness of working time that was originally allocated to a schedule to perform some work. It signifies a situation when assigned employees have to perform the same amount of work over a shortened period of time caused by time pressure.

 Schedule pressure creates a challenge for workers assigned to the schedule. For instance, when in a project there's a shortened or "pressed" schedule, the situation appears inflexible and intensely charged, so the challenge is that project human resources have to demonstrate higher performance and make more intensive efforts to do assigned work in a timely manner. When schedule time is pressed or shortened, the project seems to be finished sooner but with higher intensity and cost of resources.

 The greatest advantage of schedule pressure is that a skillful and enthusiastic employee tends to perform well in high pressure situations and sometimes shows even higher performance as compared to regular working conditions. Meanwhile, this advantage turns into a disaster for poorly motivated and untrained employees who can’t continue working under time pressure. That’s why, the matter of schedule pressure should be carefully considered by management.
